Review for American Farmland Trust, Washington, DC, USA
I have been on the board of American Farmland Trust for many years now. I know the organization to be filled with dedicated, smart and innovative people who are making a real difference in the field of farmland conservation and the stewardship of agricultural lands generally. AFT is the only organization to stand in the crucial intersection between agriculture and the environment, an essential space with a lot of needs. Most recently the organization has become a major player in reshaping the Farm Bill.

Seeing preserved land, learning about creative experiments on the ground that have served to inform high level policy decisions, etc.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make sure they got more funding!
